  1. Hey Paul, I'm not sure if it's jsut me, but I can't see the kitchen anymore. I know you've stopped development on it, but I've been a fan of your ROM's for a while and need to sort out my Mrs phone. I've downloaded the base ROM you've made for now but don't even know what options are in it :( Thanks as always and keep up the awesome work!!
  2. Just to add my 2c... Mine's varied from about 10 seconds to 10 minutes at different times and locations. I've even had it get a location in seconds and then about 15 minutes later take a few minutes. I've also got what I would consider a pretty thick case on it and it doesn't seem to affect the time. I know this will seem like the stupid statement, but it really does seem to depend on you current situation.
  3. Randomly, do you have NoLED installed? It may be one of the settings I've changed (not experimented yet) but since an update about a month ago whenever I plug mine in NoLED starts up and stops the screen automatically switching off. As soon as I kill NoLED, the screen switches off as normal.
  4. I Agree with maedox... Generally there'll be an app to do what ever you need. Just wanted to add that I'm using WidgetLocker and there is a slider that can be added to your lock screen to change between Silent, Vibrate & Audio. Also, Tasker does have the feature needed to change settings depending on the orientation of the phone. I have a feeling Locale can probably do it too, but ever since it came out of Beta it lost a lot of features and destroyed battery life, also Tasker is a fair amount cheaper from what I remember.
  5. Ah man, had me really excited there for a minute, although it's probably more my fault.. I'm waiting for a Case Mate Clear Armor to come out... Similar to the one they did for the Galaxy S(1) http://www.case-mate.com/Samsung-Galaxy-S-...Clear-Armor.asp Not sure they'll be able to do it though, with the back of the phone being all textured. Was awesome barely having a case and it's great when placed on smooth surfaces cause of the friction, it almost feels like it's sticking, slightly. Thanks for looking and letting me know!! Edit: Aha! I've just found that Zagg already do a skin, just need to find it in the UK now.... http://www.zagg.com/invisibleshield/samsun...ins-shields.php
  6. Completely agree about the screen protectors. I've found recently that everyone's trying so hard to make the protector cover 100% of the screen that they have no margin for error, or are actually slightly too large and you end up with bubbles around the edges. I bought one on e-bay and just ended up trimming it before installing and got a decent fit. Not a fan of cases either and would rather get a Case-Mate or Zagg skin, but until they're available, I'm waiting on this to arrive (ordered 4th May but still not turned up, so maybe find it somewhere else) as it looks like it's nice and slim.. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...e=STRK:MEWNX:IT
  7. It wasn't the asking for an update, like hundreds of other people do across the range of mobiles covered on here, it was the unnecessary comments about the amount of views and his 'failure' to reply and the comment insinuating the loss of your £10. Have some respect and lose the sarcasm.
  8. And thank you for being a badword! I 100% agree with AndyCr15, Paul cannot be expected to dedicate his life to pleasing everyone on this forum, he probably has other things he is busy with or even other phones/OS's. Be patient! Also, like you said, you paid to use the kitchen, you did not pay to be a demanding 'customer' who can tell someone when to do something or insist on a reply. And of course you're going to get multiple views to a post titled 'update MCR' people are going to think there is one and will be looking for it, it does not look like a request/demand. If you're going to make a post asking about an update, why not title it something like 'When will the next update to MCR be available?' You'll get a lot less views from people thinking they're going to get some sort of useful information and a lot more people telling you to stop being a 2 year old and to have patience. Please note, I speak solely for myself and the views and opinions included in this reply are those solely of my own.
  9. It's been a while since I did mine (sept 09) but was prompted for it again after installing a custom rom a few months later. Used http://www.thephoneunlockers.com but they don't seem to do HTC Hero's on Orange anymore. Cost me £23.10 and I've still got the code e-mail they sent, so if it prompts me again I can just re-enter it without stuggling to find it or paying again. Think they're charging around £14 for a Hero now, so might be worth getting in contact with them to see if they can still do them. I've used several of the roms before 2.1 went official, than stuck with Paul's ever since. Not sure how much that helps.
  10. You definately rooted? I seem to remember getting a similar screen, if not that one, just after HTC returned my Hero. Install Root Explorer from the market and see if it will allow you to reboot the phone. You can do a second check installing Root Explorer and seeing if it will allow you to mount the root folder on you phone to Read/Write (click on the 'Mount R/W' button at the top of the screen). A final alternative method to check is to install Titanium Backup and opening it. Upon opening the app it will ask for Root access or tell you that it is unable to access root. Not sure if this is the issue, as you are getting the recovery screen, so should have root, but there may be some way of producing this that I'm not aware of.

    Nice one. Keep an eye on it though, mine did the same thing and I was able to get rid of the icon the majority of the time (cleaning, disconnecting and re-connecting a data cable/charger or rebooting) but eventually it jsut would not go away. Since I got it back (a few months ago) it's been a bit more firm placing cables into it, in fact one barely goes in.

    Had the same problem. Send it back to HTC for a repair. They'll replace the connector in the bottom of the handset (the USB/Charging connector).
  13. Hmmm, any chance you could upload it somewhere else too.. It cancelled itself after 89MB and now fails to start downloading. Thanks in advance.
  14. Don't you then have problems with updates? Or do you download the APK again for each update?
  15. Having the same problem intermitantly.. So far either rebooting the phone or stopping the download and clicking 'Install' a second time seems to resolve it for me. Some times switching my mobile network or Wi-Fi on and off, or off and on, does the trick too. So far I have not had to clear any caches or wipe my phone and it's started to download straight away again. Nor do I every use Google Talk, never opened it in the 8 months I've had the phone. Just have a play around.
  16. Try using a few differnet ROM's for different operators. The CID error is because it's been programmed to expect a certain 'brand' of RUU update. You may also need to update your SPL if you have not done that yet. I found Paul's sticky'd one worked perfectly. Have a look through this post for a hopefully more detailed explaination. I think the Orange Rom I used was I've just found what I think was the heroimg.zip I used (click on heroimg.zip to download, just started uploading while posting this, so it might take about 30 mins before it's available). Give it a go and see if it works (after checking your SPL is up to date). Ignore all that, mis-read your post. Have you managed to Root your phone yet using the Unlockr on click method (link below). If you root it and intall a custom recovery, like Amon-ra, then load up the recovery menu and flash your desired rom using the 'flash zip from sd' option. 1. Head over to The Unlockr to see how to root your phone and install a custom recovery. 2. Once completed, reboot the phone into recovery (hold the back button while powering on) and flash your chosen ROM using the 'Flash zip from SD' option. I've had no problems with the CID doing it this way If you can't root because of the version you're running, ley me know and I'll post the RUU and heroimg.zip for v as I can't remember if the link on The Unlockr still allows you to download the older version any more.
  17. LOL! Awesome! Happened to me a couple of times, but then stopped again. Been working fine since it was sent back though.
  18. +1,293,747,272!!! I barely use this forum atm and can't belive how many 2.1 posts there are. A mod/admin just needs to delete them and add a sticky telling people not to ask. Naruc - If you read (that's past tense, as in, if you had read the forum already. Not if you go read through it now you'll find blaa blaa blaa) the forum, like you said you do/had, you'll have already found that Paul has already outright stated that he will not be doing a MCR based on 2.1 until the Official ROM is released. Anyway, he's got lots on his plate so wait until he's ready and when he is, he'll do it, until then, WAIT!
  19. Excellent, thanks. Thought it might be but didn't want to starting missing more calls.
  20. Nice one.. Stupid question though, how do you set it to use both, which setting do i need? I keep missing calls and messages whenever I loose 3G signal.
  21. No worries. Cool, it's your choice at the end of the day. Just keep an eye on it as it might just keep getting worse and worse and if it does make sure it's sorted before your warranty runs out. BTW, it took HTC about 1 week to collect the phone, fix it and return it. I was out of the country for 8 days and it was waiting for me when I got back. They pay for everything, except the printing of the delivery label. Totally agree about the 'hard-reboot' only being temporary, it's actually made things worse for me before. Before I sent it in for repair it suddenly started working again, did the hard-reboot for some reason (can't remember why now) after successfully doing multiple normal reboots and all the problems returned. Pain in the arse I tell you, pain in the arse!
  22. Had similar issues too, been trhough most of those as I work shifts that can change daily and stay at two different houses on a regular basis, so a normal alarm clock's a pain in the arse. I've had the volume set to 0 (phone on silent/vibrate), killed the app and switched it off while on auto-pilot. Solution: 1. Install a seperate app, I'm currently using Alarming! as you can set it to ask a maths question or to press on all the white dots on screen before it will switch off (lots of other apps are available too). It also has an option to play the alarm audio even if the phone is on silent. 2. Added the alarm app to my ignore list. 3. Installed Locale (was much better when it was a free beta, very buggy now so be careful) and the All Volume plugin and set a condition that at 05:00 in the morning all my volumes are set to 80%. 4. Added a second condition that when I get to work all the volumes are set to 0. You can also set Locale to open the app at a certain time (if your alarm is set for 06:00, set Locale to open the app at 05:50 for example) which can then sort out any force close errors on that app or if it's accidentally killed by an app or system, then it's open.
  23. I had the same problem for ages, with the exception of any PC I connected my phone to would completely freeze until the phone was unplugged. Tried everything you've done so far, phoned HTC who said 'hard reboot' the phone by taking the battery out while the phone is still on, then to try a factory reset/wipe then to wait for the next software update from Orange. Told them I wasn't happy with that as I had already upgraded it and the fault never cleared (didn't mention that I'd tried 3 other custom ROMs) and they took it in for repair. They replaced the USB connector and it's been working fine for the last 2 weeks now. On a seperate note, before you can return it, you'll need to remove the custom rom and recovery using the official RUU, which needs a working USB connection, might be a small problem. I've worked through this with pulsar recently, see here. Had to downgrade the version when I got it back (just used the heroimg method as the RUU was giving me grief) and re-rooted the phone, all good after that. Have a read through that post and let us know how you get on.
  24. Like everyone has been saying, if the phone is replaced with a new/refurbished one, then you'll have problems, otherwise you'll be fine! I've just got mine back from HTC, all they did was replace the USB connector, nothing else, so it's still unlocked. They most likely will update the rom, which could prevent you from loading a custom rom. I'd suggest getting your hands on an old RUU (it will need to be the exe not an update.zip version) before sending it off. If you can't find one (had a few problems getting my hands on one as alot of places stopped hosting or only had the latest version) update your SPL before sending it off, that way you may still be able to use the heroimg.zip method (see my other posts or search the forum for all the links). You could always try contecting the place you got you unlock code from and see if they can resend it to you, just saying you lost it. They might not charge as most of the work has already been done and they might have a database of previous codes, or they could just be friendly and have good customer services if it's the same IMEI. Worth trying. I don't know anything about them, but that 'turbo' system dosen't look too kosher, but I might be wrong and lots of people are more than welcome to correct me :-D
